I can't Get Twitter Alerts

Jay AndrewsJay Andrews FreedomPop Newbie Posts: 3
FreedomPop is unable to get SMS alerts from Twitter. I have an important one I used to get before I switched to FreedomPop, but now twitter says " there was an error sending a text to that phone number. The operator is not supported." Is there any way to fix this problem?

    Hello Jay! If this verification is done by automatically detecting your phone number, unfortunately, you will not be able to sign in to that application. Because we use a VoIP calling application for our service instead of the dialer that came with the phone, these shortcodes may not work. Apps send a text message to the number that it detects is integrated into your phone. This is the same number you will see under Settings, and it is different from your FreedomPop phone number.

    If you install the Twitter Android app it can alert you directly on the phone without using SMS. I don't use iOS but I suspect the Twitter iOS app has a similar function.
